Internship Opportunities 

Elective Rotations for Medical/Allied Health Students

As part of its mission to help prepare citizen service leaders for tomorrow’s communities, Horseshoe Farm offers internships, elective rotations, and service learning opportunities to medical students, medical residents, allied health students, and other graduate and undergraduate students interested in learning about biopsychosocial approaches to care, community health and education, and community service leadership.

Rotating students and residents will have the opportunity to work in clinical settings with Dr. Dorsey and his colleagues.  These experiences will be complemented by opportunities to learn about and serve in Horseshoe Farm's community based programs for seniors, adults, and children.  Clinical experiences include geriatric and adult inpatient, intensive outpatient, and outpatient mental health programs. Experiences at Horseshoe Farm include service in innovative support, day, and housing programs for seniors and adults, and tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment programs for children.

Through their experiences, students will gain a greater understanding of how clinical practice and community based work can be blended to improve health outcomes, improve quality of life, improve population health, and strengthen local communities. They will also also learn about community based non-profit work, innovative approaches to supporting vulnerable adults and children, biopsychosocial models of care, team approaches to care, and rural healthcare.

Comfortable shared housing in Greensboro is available to students and residents.

Please email to inquire about available spots and scheduling.

Undergraduate Internships and Service Learning

Horseshoe Farm offers 8-10 week undergraduate internships in fall, winter, spring, and summer for students interested in future work in medicine, public and community health, psychology, education, and community service leadership. In addition, we offer a shorter, 3-4 week internship in January for interested students.

Project Horseshoe Farm also works with several colleges and universities on service learning projects including a pioneering remote tutoring program that allows children in Horseshoe Farm's after school programs to receive more than 70 hours per week of one-on-one help in math and reading from top students at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), Auburn University, and the University of Alabama (UA).
